.MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Atwood does a good job of world building a plausible next step evolution for humanity, that may not include humans as we know them. Sexual competition as a source of distress and calamity with homo sapiens (unlike Crakers) is a pretty constant refrain.
It is a distinctly Atwood novel. The writing style, dancing between internal dialog, remembrance and journal writing. You are never quite sure where you are, which is consistent with a "post Flood" society that marks the passage of time by festivals, births and deaths.
